Ileostomy and chemotherapy

Posted: Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:54 am

Hello Everyone on this great site!! I just want to say thanks to everyone who posts - I just found this site and have had ulcerative colitis and a J- pouch resection for 30 years before I had an ileostomy placed in 2013 because of fistulas. Whatever - I should have had it done 10 years before that!! I do triathlons, coach basketball and track, work in insurance, and raised 3 kids through it all. But NOW, I just got diagnosed with breast cancer (after surviving surgery for a blockage 🙄), and the chemo is killing me, because of dehydration!!! Any suggestions???

I have my next Dr. appointment in a couple of weeks and with the help of my new shoes I am hoping I wont have to get shot's in both of my heels again for Plantar Fasciitis. I also haven't had to wear my boot as long in the evenings. The only thing I wish is that they had a few cuter styles in boots. I love both pairs of orthofeets that I bought.
